How important is this recruiting weekend to the CU program under Mel Tucker?
  • Important. I would like for the Buffs to have a good weekend, if for no other purpose than to right the ship, and get the program pointed in the right direction (56%, 67 Votes)
  • Crucial. The Mel Tucker era has gotten off to a shaky start. Keeping the remaining recruits, and picking up a few others is vital for the Buffs going forward (39%, 46 Votes)
  • Not vital. Sure, a few good new recruits are always welcome, but, in the grand scheme of things, this is not that big a deal (5%, 6 Votes)

CU loses a seventh commit ... and its defensive line coach. How are you holding up?
  • Hanging in there. I'll wait to see how the Recruiting Class shakes out next Wednesday, and who gets hired on as assistants ... THEN I may start to panic ... (45%, 220 Votes)
  • Just fine. Mel Tucker is a long term solution. Buff fans need to take a deep breath - or several - and trust in the process. Remember what we are moving away from (0-10 in trying to win a sixth game) (34%, 168 Votes)
  • Despondent. CU can't hold off KANSAS for an assistant coach, 35% of the Recruiting Class (and counting?) is gone, and the two new hires are less than awe inspiring. I having a crisis of faith here (21%, 99 Votes)

Report: CU to name Tyson Summers as its defensive coordinator. Thoughts?
  • In Tuck We Trust! Not sure about the hire, but I'll give Summers the benefit of the doubt. Tucker is a defensive coach, so the head coach will still oversee the defense. Fingers crossed. (61%, 275 Votes)
  • Hate it. A 5-13 record as a head coach (at a G5 school), no proven track record of excellence as a defensive coordinator, and no background recruiting Texas or the West. Color me disappointed (23%, 103 Votes)
  • Like it! Head coaching experience? Check. Defensive coordinator experience? Check. Familiar with how Coach Tucker will want to run his defense? Check. What's not to like? (16%, 70 Votes)

Six of CU's 20 previous verbal commitments from the Recruiting Class of 2019 have de-committed. Your level of concern?
  • Medium. I would have preferred to hang on some of the commits (especially QB Ty Evans, who was an in-state commit, and an apparent leader in recruiting other prospects) (42%, 209 Votes)
  • Low. In Mel Tucker we trust. We have to have faith that the new coaching staff will pick up other (and better) recruits, either by the 19th, or by the February Signing Day (40%, 201 Votes)
  • High. Thirty percent of the Class gone? With no new commitments? Recruiting is the key to success, and CU seems to be sacrificing this Class (18%, 90 Votes)

Report: Coach Tucker to retain four assistants from Mike MacIntyre's staff. Thoughts?
  • Good news. Buff alumni Chiaverini and Hagan, plus quality coaches in Els and Drake. Not sure about keeping all four, but in Tucker we trust! (55%, 232 Votes)
  • Great news! Continuity with the current players; continuity with the Buff Nation; better chance of keeping the Recruiting Class together - what's not to like? (34%, 142 Votes)
  • Not excited. Nothing personal, but after a decade of losing, I was hoping for a fresh start. Retaining 40% of a staff which couldn't find a way to win six games is not the best way to get there (11%, 46 Votes)
